About Malcolm Campbell

Malcolm Campbell

SIR MALCOLM CAMPBELL  d1948. Internationally famous English speed record pioneer (father of Donald) who began the legendary Bluebird speed-dynasty racing cars at Brooklands in 1910. He broke nine land-speed records between 1924 (146mph) and 1935, becoming the first man ever to break the 300mph barrier. He also broke the water-speed record four times (the last one in Bluebird K4 at Coniston in 1939). He died at his home in Surrey aged 63 in 1948 after a long illness. One of a very few speed pioneers of his era to die of natural causes.

A wonderful original vintage 1928 Cunard RMS Berengaria card, clearly signed in ink by Malcolm Campbell

Date of this autograph is significant (Read Certification Section)

Certification:

Malcolm Campbell followed Henry Segrave to Daytona Beach with Bluebird in February 1928. He took a new Landspeed Record at 206.95MPH, becoming the first man ever to break 200mph. The date of this autograph is March 1928, so is likely to have been signed on-board during his journey home to England. One of a fine collection of original circa 1920-30s Cunard RMS Berengaria signed cards obtained by a Miss Brain who was a stewardess on board this famous cruise-liner. RMS Berengaria was originally named the SS Impersonator (built for the Hamburg America Line) and first launched in 1912. At the time of her completion (in June 1913) she was the largest passenger ship in the world, surpassing the RMS Olympic and her sister ship RMS Titanic by 24ft. During World War 1, she remained in port in Hamburg ; after the war she was briefly commissioned by the US Navy as a troop transport ship (USS Imperator). Following her US Navy Service, her name was changed to "RMS Berengaria" and she was handed over to Britain's Cunard Line as part of war reparations. She became their flagship cruise-liner between 1919-1934. She was retired in 1938 and later sold to Sir John Jarvis to be broken up and scrapped on the Tyne between 1939-1946.
